Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween all, definitely writing today off from the weight loss perspective. My company had a potluck lunch and brought in pizzas to boot. Combined with free candy that was absolutely everywhere I went today (home, work, the grocery store), this was a bad eating day. I'm going to throw down one more mini-Butterfinger, take my "F" grade for the day and get back to it tommorow.

Out of earning this "F" though, I have realized that I will start the everyday "A" through "F" grading on the blog again, even if it's just a sentence or two. It's an easy way to keep up with the blog and it tends to keep me more accountable to myself.

Happy Halloween all!

Balance

I tend to be one of those obsessive personalities who gets really fired up with something for awhile only to have my interest eventually fade away. Back in early 2010, weight loss was my day and night obsessession and I had a lot of success with it. Then my interests shifted over to programming smartphone "apps" and that was going prety well for a bit but life pressures got in the way and I just kind of abandoned it too. This year, I've bought a few charcoal smokers and have become fascinated with learning how to make great slow-smoked authentic barbeque...ribs, chicken, smoked turkey legs... and I'm smoking and reading about smoking in every spare moment.

The point is I want to find a way to escape this cycle of do one thing, burn out on it, move on to the next. I should be able to strike a balance that allows focus on weight loss, programming smartphone apps, improving my BBQ skills, and life/work/family. It's just going to take a little more organization and committment on my part to make it happen.

Hope everyone's weight loss journey is going well!
